will a Turkey pattern you?
But let me clarify. I believe roost areas are much more sensitive to pressure and subject to patterning than other areas that birds frequent and pass through during the day. Some examples:
1. On our 450 acre Missouri lease, my father and his friend, both in their 70s, primarily hunt a 30 acre timber close to camp. Additionally, they use an ATV to get up a 200 ft. ridge every morning at 5:00 a.m. Early in the week the timber is full of roosting, gobbling birds and affords them shot opportunities. By the end of the week there are only a few birds roosting there and the ones that do don't gobble. At this point I am usually on the scoreboard and taking them to some of my honey holes in an effort to get them birds. I have watched this phenomenon for 8 seasons now. This is clearly an example of hunters providing a pattern and turkeys heeding it.
2. I missed a bird one day and shot another the next at exactly the same spot on the lease, at nearly the same time (hour after fly down)
3. My brother in law and I both shot gobblers on my property, sitting under the same tree, one week apart.
The last two examples suggest that birds range around and do not remember occurances from a day or week to the next. I tend to agree with Silvestris, if you provide a pattern, the turkeys will pick up on it. But like I said, I also think roost areas are more sensitive that others in this regard.
